Actually , the GPRS Shield has bulit-in RCT functionality, you needn't to use another RTC module, see the At Command datasheet, you will know that.

OK, fessing up right up front: I'm a "noob", so please be patient with the following really stupid questions:
1. I see T-mobile has unlocked GSM cards for free, but I assume that won't do me any good if I don't have a T-mobile account, or is there a way to just communicate locally between GPRS shield and a nearby phone?
2. Is the simple solution here to buy an unlocked GSM with some account that has a limited number of hours or whatever (I don't want to add an entire new "phone" to my existing plan while I'm just experimenting)
3. In the GPRS shield Wiki it talks about installing sscom32E. My guess is that this is simply a serial line terminal program and I can just use Zmodem instead, is this correct, or is there something special about sscom32e that makes it better for interacting with the GPRS?

If I can get past these basics, I am really interested in building the phone!!
I really like your comment about the size thing too, maybe skip the pcb and use point to point wiring and some really old-fashioned enclosure. :)

about the first 2 questions~ I am not familiar to~ But I can tell you that sscom32E is just a normal serial line terminal~ take it easy, you can use any terminal as you like ! :D
